The First Presbyterian Church was built in 1905 by architect Theophilus Parsons Chandler, Jr. of Philadelphia in the Neo-Gothic Revival style. The building’s twin towers are modeled after Yorkminster Cathedral in England. The most unique feature of the church are two giant shell doors behind the low pulpit.   The doors are 35 feet tall and weight two tons each.

Visitors will be amazed to see the pulpit doors opened, revealing the remaining third of the church called the “chapel” and the great Stem of Jesse window depicting the genealogy of Jesus Christ.
